    I have a dear friend who resides in this nursing home. It is fairly new so clean with modern furnishings. I have been frustrated at times with mixed messages and changing visiting rules largely due to Covid and often when I have booked an appointment on line my friend has not been available for the visit or not aware I was coming. On the whole I believe the care is good and my friend reports the meals are fair. We both laugh about the term ‘nursing home’ because it’s not a home where you can do as you please, eat when you want, go to bed or get up when you want etc etc. i guess that’s why ‘residential care’ is more appropriate. I have seen a lot of nursing homes in the past few years and I believe this one, all things considered, is pretty good.
